We address the use of visualization and interactivity in molecular dynamics simulation. In an interactive environment the simulator is not only provided with the means to view the system in alternative ways in real-time, but is also able to 'steer' the computation in different directions by changing the governing parameters of the system. The simulational experience can be enhanced significantly by such means. Several examples are outlined.
